The Hard Tackle provides your one-stop shop for all the best betting markets for several Premier League matches featuring Chelsea vs Arsenal among other
Chelsea and Arsenal are set to lock horns in a pivotal clash in the race for the Premier League title. Conte has avoided defeat to Liverpool and a positive result against Arsenal could all but secure the Blues’ position as favourites for the crown. Arsenal will be without Wenger, who is still serving a touchline ban.
Elsewhere, Manchester United missed an opportunity to close the gap on top four with a frustrating stalemate against Hull City, while Manchester City could regain a place in the top four with a win against Swansea, given other results go their way.
We at The Hard Tackle take a closer look at the best betting markets to profit from in the 24th Gameweek of the Premier League. But first, let us take a look at the previous results of our betting suggestions.

Underdogs Result: We got one right out of six.
Chelsea FC vs Arsenal FC
The matchday serves a cracking first fixture as an Arsene Wenger-less Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea FC in what is expected to be a pulsating contest. The absence of Wenger at the touchline has already seen the Gunners succumb to a narrow loss to Watford and they could be in for another hard time.
Conte would relish the opportunity to get back at Arsenal after the early season defeat to the rivals. This could prove to be a fiery affair and we may even see a red card in the match. Chelsea look primed to win but you never know with the Premier League.
1. Over 4.5 Match Cards @ 1.66
2. Over 10.5 Corners @ 1.90
3. Both Teams to Score – NO @ 2.00
1. Red Card in Match – YES @ 4.00
2. Over 0.5 Cards in first 10 minutes @ 6.00
Hull City FC vs Liverpool FC
Marco Silva will be pleased with his start in England as Hull City are finally starting to look like a team that is ready to fight for their place in the Premier League. A battling 0-0 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford will further lift their spirits and could be just what they needed before the Liverpool game.
Hull actually have an impressive recent history against Liverpool, especially in home games, where they have won the last two. And with the morale boost combined with Liverpool’s recent struggles, perhaps a positive result for Hull will not be too far-reaching.
1. Hull City Asian Handicap + 1.0,1.5 @ 1.875
2. Over 1.5 Liverpool Cards @ 2.00
3. Liverpool Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.66
1. Hull Draw No Bet @ 5.00
Tottenham Hotspur FC vs Middlesbrough FC
Middlesbrough are struggling. No wins in their last six Premier League matches and now they face another tasking prospect, to overcome Tottenham, that too at White Hart Lane. Tottenham too, have been halted in their Chelsea chase, with draws against Manchester City and Sunderland.
Pochettino would be keen to get back to winning ways, with his Tottenham side facing another struggling side. And, given the gulf in class, this may just turn out to be a battering, which is what we expect it to be.
1. Tottenham Asian Handicap – 1.5 @ 1.850
2. Harry Kane to score anytime @ 1.61
3. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.72
4. Over 10.5 Corners @ 1.83
5. Tottenham Clean Sheet – YES @ 1.66
1. Harry Kane to score 2 or more @ 3.60
Leicester City FC vs Manchester United FC
This fixture is very intriguing. Ranieri’s side look set to be in the relegation battle, something no one would have predicted at the start of the season, just like no one would have predicted their title triumph last season.
Manchester United, on the other hand, are struggling to find the back of the net, despite dominant displays, something that is bound to frustrate the star-studded squad. United powered through early on in the season with a benchmark performance.
And Mourinho would hope the Red Devils are able to replicate it. Even with United’s struggles the odds of 1.70 are oddly overpriced when you see Leicester’s form guide. It’s about time the real Leicester City stand up, or show up, at least.
1. Manchester United to win @ 1.70 ( only because of the juicy odds)
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 2.05
3. Over 9.5 Match Corners @ 1.72
1. Paul Pogba to score anytime @ 3.40
Manchester City FC vs Swansea City FC
City should win this one, in all fairness. But the odds of 1.22 against a team that is on a run of 2 straight wins, that too against Liverpool and Southampton, and are battling for relegation doesn’t seem fairly priced. The odds mean the Swansea Handicap sits at a very good price and we should take a gamble on Paul Clement.
And, by the way, Swansea have not managed a win in the last six meetings with City, just a quick stat attack to back City. But, Clement’s side has scored in each of those defeats and have also not failed to cover the following handicap of +2.
1. Swansea City Asian Handicap + 2.0 @ 1.925
2. Manchester City Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.80
1. Gylfi Sigurdsson to score anytime @ 4.00
Here are the best betting markets involving the other Premier League teams.
1. Crystal Palace to win vs Sunderland @ 1.66
2. Manolo Gabbiadini to score anytime @ 2.50 [ Southampton vs West Ham United FC ]
3. West Bromwich Albion vs Stoke City FC – Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.95
1. Everton vs Bournemouth – Full Time Result – Draw @ 4.00
2. Saido Berahino to score anytime @ 3.60 [ West Bromwich Albion vs Stoke City FC ]
